This 16 string N’Goni was hand made in Bobo Dialasso (Burkina Faso) from a resonating calabash, goat skin, wood and with nylon strings which produce a mellow, bluesy sound. It has well made guitar tuning keys too for easy adjustable tuning.
The N’Goni is the instrument of the traditional hunter societies of Mali and Guinea. In ancient times it was a sacred ceremonial instrument played during pre-hunt ceremonies to accompany the long, epic stories about famous hunters and mythology.
